Supercar fans around the world know Koenigsegg because of the names Agera and Regera – two supercars that were once the fastest cars in the world. However, the Swedish brand is also famous for its innovations in the supercar world. The CCX or the fuel tank they use for the aforementioned Regera and Agera Duo is an example.
Of all the essential components of motor cars, the fuel tank is probably the one that has changed the least over the decades.
Although it is a safety device that requires special attention, the fuel tank almost always fails if it uses a “water tank” design, no matter what brand it comes from in any period.
Their position is always near the center of the vehicle to ensure that they are least affected by external collision forces.
However, on a Koenigsegg CCX, Agera or Regera, if not offered, 100% of the audience would not know that the fuel tank of the car in front of them.
This is because the fuel tanks of the supercars mentioned above are different from any other car model present in the market. Even with many exclusive supercars, their fuel tank is simply a tank housed in a carefully protected external frame.
As with the 3 Koenigsegg supercars, their aluminum fuel tank is designed like the carbon frame next to it and connects directly to the chassis. according to page DriveMr. John, a former Koenigsegg engineer, said that the design the company uses matches the special design of the structure as well as the vehicle design (all of these areas are produced by Koenigsegg itself).
Because aluminum tanks and carbon frames have different thermal expansion coefficients, they require slightly different amounts of space to expand flexibly. Therefore, there is a special anti-vibration adhesive layer between the fuel tank and the carbon frame.
